Why visit a castle in a car when you can go by bike through the countryside, along rivers, and past pubs? This family-friendly biking adventure to Czech Republic's most impressive castle introduces you to a new side of Prague not seen on a city map.
Starting at our office in central Prague, we leave the city behind and dive into the green world of charming riverbanks, small towns, and flowering meadows. As the mostly flat, paved 35 km (19 miles) route follows the Vltava and Berounka rivers, we cross multiple small bridges. To refresh during the ride, we stop in a local bakery with various authentic sweets. On a warm day, you might even take a cooling swim in the Berounka River.
The banks of Berounka River host several cottages in nature, where Prague citizens take refuge from the capital over the weekend. This cycling path is quite popular, so there are numerous pubs along the way to taste the famous Czech beer. Even though the usual route is mostly paved, in case you like a bit of terrain, we will be happy to take you on those routes.
When we arrive, it’s hard not to be stunned by the magnificent view of the Karlstejn Castle. You can either take the 55-minute castle tour (170 CZK, not included in price) or rest in one of the many pubs with a cold beer and delicious Czech meal.
We end the trip with a nice 40-minute train ride back to Prague. Private tours can also decide to return on their bikes, turning it into a full day journey. All things considered, if you wish a relaxing bike ride to explore the surroundings of Prague and to see some of its historical jewels, this trip is the way to go.
Hop on a bike and wind down riverside routes to get to know the real side of Prague. Relaxing, rewarding, and remarkable, this experience is one to remember.

Our family experienced a magical day on our biking tour from Prague to Karlstejn Castle with Jana and Sabina. They were fun, friendly and made the experience very joyful. They managed to keep our 11 year old son engaged and motivated to bike! It was a day of beautiful scenery, charming villages, great conversations and a fairy tale castle. We highly recommend this tour.
